Did a lot of rewriting and I'm still about 13 K short of the word goal for my sci-fi.
So, I've decided to print out what I've got, put it aside and start working on the first draft of my post-Civil War story.
I need a change of scenery, I guess. Once I get the first draft done, maybe I can go back and figure out what new scenes to add to get that sci-fi plumped out.
I plan to review my outline for the historical tomorrow, then dive into the first draft on Monday. If I can get the first 5000 words written over next week, I'll be very happy.
Is anybody starting on a first draft? If so, let me know what your word count goals are?
And by the way, Northern Roses and Southern Belles is slated for release on July 31, 2009. More on that to come.
